The French international is seemingly available for transfer at the end of this season, but has also been linked with the Gunners in the past as Arsene Wenger is a long-time admirer of his fellow countryman.
Still, Liverpool are desperate to replace Luis Suarez with a world class forward, and will bid a club-record £40m to bring the former Lyon man to Anfield.
This could then allow Real to sign another Arsenal target in Edinson Cavani for around £50m, meaning the north Londoners could miss out on two of their top striker targets.
